lots of infrastructure to support that. whether it is to file a patent or funding or just local expertise, it has been there a long time. a lot of world-class universities on the doorstep. here in london, we are starting to build a similar sort of infrastructure. a lot of these companies coming together just to talk about what they are doing. one thing that epitomizes silicon valley is the network effect that comes from these companies together. >> you are basing -- you are based in cambridge as a company. if the southeast becoming the hub? will be oxford and cambridge? more armo see holdings, millions and billions being made by these companies.

4:31 am
probably this year rather than next. >> which ties in with pimco, and a number of other houses. torcharney really lit the last thursday night, saying that the markets perhaps should readjust their view on when rate hikes will come. let's take a look at the short-term chart. there is a couple of other things coming out on the monetary policy committee in terms of their view. they are saying -- this is where we go into the nuances and the boring my new shop. for some, the hike decision was balanced than early and won a 14. that takes me back to last month. the decision was becoming more balanced. we are seeing more balance used again. that is the same phrase being used again. you have got to get ready. guys and girls have got to get ready for the prospect of higher rates before the end of the
4:32 am
year. this is going to set off the debate about the velocity of rate hikes. if we have a look at what else the mpc is saying, premature tightening could see sizable lost output. that is two sides of the scales if you think about it. get ready for higher rates before the end of 2014. we can see how that is reacting. on the right side of the scales, they are balancing that out. this goes back to the heart of what mark carney said last thursday. raising rates right now is almost the last line of defense. that is not what he wants to do to control the housing market. >> that is why they want to use those macro credentials. boe headline, clearly surprised by the low probability attached to a 2014 rate hike.
4:33 am
miles, we had a story saying that he sees only a 10% probability. the markets have repriced the rate hike. what is the expectation now? still early 2015? >> pimco says the fourth quarter of this year. despite the low inflation numbers, the lowest inflation since 2009 which you got yesterday, nothing will stop the bank of england. guy, i am surprised at dollar-sterling. fairly flickering. am i being unfair? >> a lot of it has been priced in. waysis repetition in some of what carney livered. in some ways, we have had the message. thatis just a confirmation the mpc is broadly thinking along those same lines. the boe saying it would be
4:34 am
difficult to reverse the first rate hike. that may be goes to a little bit of caution around that first rate hike. the first one in the cycle is often the most important. nevertheless, you get a sense that they are taking this seriously. or they be our -- they are being more cautious. >> the bank of england can be argued to start earlier. to start earlier means more gradual hikes. this is my bone of contention with the bank of england. i have lived through a number of rate cycles. when rate hikes, -- and this is where i have a big issue with there is nobody out there that can absolutely with any authority, even mark carney, died the markets. nobody has a clue. we have never had this quantitative easing before. will janet go for a full carney?

4:38 am
>> one of the biggest things we saw coming through, this is going to be based on the economy. the s&p downgraded south africa just last week. this is all about ensuring investor confidence. he spoke about the mining strike. he said it is one of the reasons we see lower economic growth. he also said mining companies should be doing more to improve the living conditions of miners . he said that mining companies face a deadline this year to hostels be the converted into housing units and one person per room. these are all legacy issues for the companies. the other big thing that president zuma came up with was focused on what he called a radical socioeconomic transformation which includes the overhauling of the energy sector. it is something we have heard

4:46 am
this particular refinery supplies baghdad in general. it is likely to have an impact on the economy. this is one of the largest refineries in iraq. we keep hearing that we haven't seen a bigger spike in the bulk ofecause oil production infrastructure is in the south of the country. is that safe? >> you can question that as well. the situation seems to be getting worse day by day. yes, the bulk of production is coming from south of iraq that the question is, if isis takes , the question of oil supply security in south of iraq goes flying out of the window. of havingestion
4:47 am
security over oil. >> the big oil companies are removing nonessential personnel from their facilities in the south of iraq. to what extent does that degrade those facilities? >> oil companies are going to take precautionary measures to make sure their staff is safe. in terms of degrading the facility itself -- >> the ability to produce. are we going to see lower output? >> what we are seeing now is an increase from the south. int is basically because krg particular is going to have leverage over baghdad. that is probably going to compromise the exports. iraq is shia dominated, a safer region for now. it is able to export because of the south terminal.
4:48 am
we would potentially see them in the near term, you could see some increase in exports with oil companies trying to export as much as possible. putting their foot on the pedal. talk to us a little bit more about kurdistan. clearly they are gaining some autonomy here amongst the chaos. even before this got going, they had started to export oil from turkey, right? how much actual capacity do they have to pick up the slack if we lose production in the south? >> if we lose production from the south, that is a major damage to the oil market. the south produces 90% of iraq's total oil. the restrictions were because of baghdad. they were unable to compromise on what should be given to krg.
4:49 am
it could potentially rise for krg because they have that potential to increase it. regions haveish irkuk which could increase the output. a part of the northern iraq region and not the krg region. not replace the bulk of oil that comes out of the south of the area. >> do i need to start rethinking my assumptions on what iran is going to be delivering over the next few years? iran could come out of this as one of the big winners. >> i think you are right. the p5 plus one meeting is going on right now. i think iran has an upper hand here.
4:50 am
as you can see from the western governments reopening their embassies in iran, they are losing what they initially had. iran could see a significant role in maintaining stability in the region as iran understands the crisis. it does not itself want any stability -- instability reaching its own country. iran could play a strong role and the west knows that. this might have to take a step back. we could see a breakthrough in nuclear sooner than we were expecting. >> ok. then you very much indeed. come, cutting your carbon footprint. we are going to be live with the ceo of carbon culture to get tips on slashing your energy use. ♪

5:18 am
that is where we are on the pound, 1.6 945. we had a touch at $1.70 a few days back. >> more on the minutes, we are joined by the chief economist at ehrenberg. thanks for coming down. the message from the bank of england is that they are surprised by the low probability of a 2014 hike that is currently in.ed they say a gradual hike might mean starting sooner than later. have you changed your forecast, when are you expecting a hike? saying before mr. kanye. the first hike will be coming in november this year. we heard from the bank of carney has prepared us for the first rate hike. it is never a done deal, the mets make that clear. we are moving that way with strong economic data. >> why are we hiking rates in

this country if it is clearly a concern about the housing market? is it a concern about what is happening in terms of the rate of growth and dislike being used up and the unemployment numbers that have come down as quickly as they are? why are we doing this? is cominging together. we have the housing market with strong house price data. you could have argued this is just the housing market and that you might need regulatory tools rather than the blunt instrument of a rate hike to deal with that. we have seen strong employment data on the back of strong g rowth. growth being at annualized rates of above 3%. if you translate the recent u.k. labor market data into the u.s., we would be talking about three months of 650 thousand u.s. payrolls. that's the equivalent of the recent u.k. labor market data. jobs are plentiful.
